No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Nokia full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

If you are looking for a place to hang out the economy downturn. This is a place you can hide for a while.

Cons

Re-org, re-org and re-org. I have 6 managers within 2 years due to re-org. It was turned from bad to worse after I was regroup to a incapable group with full of jokers. Management only likes yes man even blind know what was wrong in the team.

Advice to Management

First line managers should be eliminated all together. They did not manage people nor project. All they do is just relay their managers request to people who report to them at the very last minute.

Then these managers blame their people for failing the project.

    Reshuffle the people. Same management sticking around. Need to have fresh dedicated accountable management in the top to survive.
